Fridail: Colour Me Crazy- Green!

Hey everyone!
Happy Friday! (It's the weekend- yay!)

First of all, I would like to apologise, because I don't have any time to do the final prompt in the Life in Lacquer July Challenge! :( But thank you for following that journey with me, and thanks again to Jade from Life in Lacquer for creating it- I had a lot of fun! :D

Also, before we dive into today's post properly, there will be no posts next week. I'm off to do a 5 day leadership program, so won't have any time (or a laptop). So go and take a well-deserved week off from reading my ramblings while I go and learn how to be a leader.

On with the post then! Today I'm showcasing my green mani for the British Nail Blogger's Colour Me Crazy challenge!

Deciding what to do for this one was a bit hard because I just love green so much! But I recently bought a green-blue crackle polish by Nails Inc, so simple had to use it. I also remembered about the bottle of glitter I have from Nails Inc's "Bling it On: Emerald" set- so I grabbed that to use too!

Polishes used are: Barry M's Aquarium "Arabian" (thumb and pinkie base colour)

Barry M's Silk "Meadow" (index and ring fingers base colour)

Nails Inc "Clapham Crackle Topcoat"

...I think I have a new favourite crackle polish! 

Anyway, looking at this mani on my nails right now, I'm loving how the duo-colours in "Arabian" are poking their way through the crackle, and also how the glitter is shimmering today! The colours are just perfect too, darn you Barry M & Nails Inc for making such wonderful polishes!

This is also my last mani before I cut my nails in preparation for my program... *sniff sniff* Goodbye long nails! :( 

So that's all from me! I shall see you on Monday the 11th of August, which just happens to be 3 days before A Level Results day (yet another thing to cry about).
Have a lovely week without me!

Your Guide to Barry M Gelly's!

Finally, the time has come for the ever-promised "Barry M Gelly Polishes Review & Swatch" Post! YAY! Now, now, settle down, settle down, and prepare yourself for an image-heavy post!

Okay, so that picture isn't too great. But there's the colours that between us (Me and Rhian) have in the Gelly range. We're only missing "Grapefruit" I think...

Swatch Watch: OPI 'Sprung'


Wooo time got away from me for a couple of weeks. Has it really been so long already? My apologies to any of you who have been eagerly waiting for new swatches (I know I have)! To make it up to you I've got a swatch for you today which, in my opinion, is pretty "in season" right now. I'm talking about the Rose Gold trend that's been going on for a year or two now - who would of known it would become so popular?

Today's nail polish is: OPI 'Sprung'. It sounds like it should be a spring green kinda colour... but nope! This polish is a beautiful rose-gold kind of colour with a perfect amount of shimmer to be classy and sophisticated. Don't believe me? Here it is!

Fact File:
Brand: OPI
Polish Name: Sprung
# of coats: 3 + (applies quite thin)
Finishing Texture: Smooth, shimmer
Cost: £3.10 at the time of writing, on

So I paired this polish with this gel-finish dotty topcoat... thing. That sadly, has no name, and was bought by my roommate…

Avril "Mille et une nuits" #32*

*This post contains an item sent to me in exchange for an honest review. Here it is a nail polish by Avril, called "Mille et une nuits" - No32.

Hello folks!

How are you all doing? How am I doing? Where am I? Who am I? So many questions...

To answer a few... I hope you are doing fine.
Yes, I am fine thank you.
I am in England, once again. For a long while this time.
I am Rachel, as always. And I have been missing from the blogging world for a couple of months.

The past 2 weeks I have spent job-searching (with success, yay!), catching up on Suits, and binge-watching Scandal. I want you all to go and do some homework and watch Scandal so I have somebody to talk to about it. Seriously.

Anyway, a few months ago I was lucky enough to be contacted by Avril - a french beauty brand which pride themselves on not testing on animals, and ensuring any of the ingredients used are also not tested on our furry friends. I highly respect this, and think that all companies should follow their …
